Towers, Armies, And Salted Sacrifices

A Lord’s Supper Meditation

Luke 14:25-35

Here at the Table we are given grace. Here, God promises to His church that she has all the resources to build a tower, and more than that, to build a holy temple made from living stones to fill the whole world.

Here at this Table God promises that His church, led by her King, is able to overcome the forces arrayed against her. Here at this Table is the offer to the world of peace, or the promise of destruction. The world must decide what to do as we invade.

Here at the Table God promises the strengthening of our faith to make us as living sacrifices, salted with the salt of the covenant, pleasing to Him.

God offers all of this, promises all of this, through the sacrificed body and blood of His Son.

This Table, then, is a means by which God makes us Kings. We are kings and priests to God and as we eat and drink at the Table of the Kingdom, our faith, allegiance, and sacrifice overcome the world, for a people who are ready to die cannot be defeated.
